I was inspired by Julie DeNeen and her recent post Go Big or Go Home to write this, mainly because I wrote some really great quotes in my comment. 😀 No, seriously, her post was actually quite inspirational.
“People are too afraid to push themselves beyond what they perceive as their potential.”
That was my first awesome quote.
But why is that? Why do we have a set “potential?” Why do parents stunt their child’s development by telling them to “reach their full potential?” We should all desire to push past, WAY past, that potential. What’s wrong with being a society full of overachievers? We’d have every disease known to man cured, world peace (or domination, whatever) and we’d be a very different human race.
